i do not disagree but i would also point out we went through an entire presidential election during an unpopular war and neither candidate in the entire period of 2012 proposed an accelerated troop drawdown. >> that is true. >> so there's a little bit of a pragmatism in the american people. we're sick of this war, we don't like it, we wish it was over and yet there's a responsibility i think among the american political body politic that i think is still there and that's going to constrain decision making. as for whether i'm optimistic or whether this mission has worked out very well, i thought the praez's words were very telling. he said we'll be able to say that we achieved our goals. but he allowed himself some flexibility to define what those goals were. since bin laden is dead, since a lot of al qaeda is decimated, could you say the narrow counterterrorism goal looks largely achieved but he's not prepared to promise that afghanistan is going to remain a stable country because we don't know that yet. i hope, martin, that in five years we can look back on this and say despite all
